"I couldn’t wait to tell Alex how his Swiss wine had once again lifted my spirits. It was last May; my mother had been in the hospital for two weeks having one delay after another over what was supposed to be emergency bypass surgery. My sister and I were soothing our nerves with a lunch at Grüner in Portland when I opened the wine list, and there it was: a bottle of Fendant, the excellent white wine from Alex’s home canton of Valais, in the French-speaking south of Switzerland.".. A Call From Switzerland, Oregon Wine Press, November 2013
